Benefits of Share my Home
Having regular reliable help around the home can be priceless. Home-help can be incredibly beneficial no matter what your situation. Single parents, older people, busy professionals, pet-owners, people recovering from surgery ALL value this. Householders find home-help costly and difficult to source competent people that you would entrust in your home.
Share my Home is a remarkable service specialising in matching you with a trusted younger companion, who provides an agreed amount of regular help around the home, usually 10 hours a week*, in exchange of accommodation. Registered companions tend to be interns or professionals that commit to a year agreement.
Share my Home does all the leg-work for you, by thoroughly screening, vetting and selecting likely companions that match your personality and requirements. We provide on-going support and complimentary services for the duration of the Home-share agreement.
*Based on the London living wage this equates to £400 worth of home help per month.
